Beethoven–Composer Study

Who doesn’t love Beethoven? We all love Beethoven and his music. After our holidays were over, I told my children that I would like for us to start learning about one composer and they could choose. Of course, they couldn’t quite agree, so we decided that they could take turns choosing. JD Boy chose our […]

Free Lapbook Giveaway

I just stumbled across the Homeschooling Hearts and Minds blog and thought you might be interested in this free giveaway. It’s one of the nicest lapbooks, I’ve ever seen.

Zippy thought when it was nice, that outside would be the best place to do her math. I […]

Human Body Unit & Lapbook

We have been studying about the human body for several weeks. Our core book or spine has been the book The House We Live In. It is an older book (written in early 1900’s) that includes information not only about the body but how to keep it healthy. I really appreciated this approach. We have […]
